The attack on an Israeli ship in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Oman, which killed two crew members, was the result of an Iranian drone strike, according to an official statement from the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet.
The U.S. Navy boarded the Mercer Street tanker in distress and assisted in moving the vessel to safer waters. According to the statement, the U.S. military immediately investigated and now cites “clear visual evidence that the attack occurred.”
“Initial signs clearly indicate a UAV attack,” the U.S. Navy said. A pair of U.S. warships, the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and the guided-missile destroyer USS Mitscher, are currently escorting Mercer Street to a safe port.
London-based Zodiac Maritime, owned by Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer, released a statement Friday confirming that two crew members, one Romanian and one British sailor, were killed in the attack.
This was followed by high-profile statements from state media in Iran, which seemed to confirm that the attack was carried out by the Islamic Republic as “retaliation” for recent Israeli attacks and sabotage operations, including recent airstrikes on Iranian-backed targets inside Syria.
Late Friday night and early Saturday, reports in the Israeli media and The New York Times quoted Israeli intelligence officials as saying that the tanker was attacked by not even one but several drones.
All of this probably means that we are about to see a serious escalation, if the recent history of tit-for-tat military strikes can serve as a guide. And it does not bode well for the prospect of the upcoming seventh round of indirect nuclear talks between the United States and Iran in Vienna, which could be derailed before they even begin again.
An enlightened gentleman from the UAE posted on GLP yesterday and shared his impressions of watching the whole package of videos. We do not cite the videos because they are all in Arabic, all without subtitles, and in some glorious countries may be considered as extremism, however, for connoisseurs of Arabic they are all available from the pages of the forum.
And so, as the Arab guys report in their videos, it has been revealed to them through the prophets that on August 10, 2021 (the date translated into the accepted calendar) some event is to take place which will lead to the coming of the Mahdi. Perhaps even the Mahdi himself will somehow manifest himself.
Of course, we do not know how trustworthy the prophecy is, but so far all indications are that Iran will be hit on August 8-10 (August 8 is a new moon), and not very hard, but enough to start the fall of the Iranian regime. And most likely in the course of the fight against this regime, the Mahdi will somehow manifest itself.
